    Its close to Bush Garden but it cost the same price of the Disney parks....

    Its far from every thing, and in the breakfast time the people working are a bit rude, like serving prisoners...

    Only the location

    The rooms - very damp, dim lighting, dirty, old and in need of a renovation. The staff was ok but not good.

    It was close to Busch Gardens.

    I was only supposed to pay $62 for the room (it was not even worth that) and the hotel charged $93 on my card. We only slept in the room, never even turned on the tv and there was no bottled water. So I am Very angry about the over charge. The neighbor hood was full of homeless drugged up transients hanging around the parking lot. The room was poorly cleaned and there was no blanket on the bed nor in any closet or drawer, just an extra sheet. It was over all a bad place to stay for more than a bed to crash in and $93 is ridiculous!!! For that matter, $62 is still ridiculous!!

    The staff was very helpful and tried hard to accommodate our needs. Close to Busch Garden parks and to lots of restaurants.

    No elevators. The facility is a bit old.The swimming pool closed at 11 pm.

    Fabulous

    We arrived very early and check in wasn't until 3. Front desk concierge (Paul), was extremely welcoming and friendly. We were able to check in right then. The beds were comfortable. Location in relation to Busch Gardens was great.

    The bathroom was in need of update. The security latch on the doors in both the rooms we booked were broken. One room had a wad of gum on the wall. Breakfast buffet was not very desirable.

    The only thing good about the Hotel was the location (Close to Busch Gardens) and the Kids water play area (Pirate Ship).

    My stay at Clarion was a disappointment. House Keeping was very bad, less than minimum cleaning, not enough towels and toiletries were provided regardless of the many requests. Complementary breakfast didn't have enough variaty. The Cooks and service staff were Loud and rude. The Gym is in a very bad condition, with an unsafe non secured weight cable machine. The matresses were uncomfortable. T.V. is old with a boring channel selection.

    Very good

    The gentleman who checked us in was very cordial. He gave accurate directions to destinations. The children really enjoyed the pool. I liked the room opening to the court area, and felt very safe staying there. The beds were comfortable and clean.

    It seems as if the motel had not been maintained over the years. The bathroom sink had a very large crack. I did not like the 'standing' closet in bath area, as it took up so much space. Our room had an odor. The carpet was not clean. The brreakfast was very good, but the children were disappointed in the lack of variety (no bacon, no pastries)

    Very good

    The two pools are great - our grandson loved the kid's pool area and the regular pool is large and clean.

    The room charge through Bookline.com was good and when I left my statement was what I expected. After coming home and checking my bank account online I discovered there was an additional $25 charge in the total. This didn't make me happy and I'm trying to find out why!

    Fabulous

    I like the fact that the hotel was just minutes away from the theme parks. I also liked the fact that there was a TGI Fridays on the premises, whiuch made getting dinner very convenient.

    I didnt like the rules they had for breakfast. I wanted to eat in the lobby. However, my husband decided to stay in bed, I was not happy about the fact that I was not able to bring him any breakfast because I had a lready eaten inside. That option made me uncomfortable. The breakfast was not too pleasant eaither. The cereal was what I enjoyed the most about breakfast.

    My daughter and I were in awe of the pools. The first one near the waterfall, well designed and relaxing. The one in the back for the kids...will have to bring my son back for that one! The price was within my budget. Was so happy to see the fridge and microwave and the breakfast was outstanding! So close to the mall..a girl's dream! The entire stay was wonderful - wish I could have stayed longer!

    The Location was good as it was close to Busch Gardens the purpose of our visit.

    A disinterested approach from one member of the Reception staff. Hotel rooms did not reflect the ones veiwed on website. Communial areas were of a grubby appearance (Stairwell) Live insects in microwave in room 2015, food stains on walls, plaster on toilet floor on our arrival and a damp unpleasant smell as you entered the rooms. Breakfast food variety was ok however servery area could do with being refurbished. Reception staff gave varied information ie Shuttle transport timings cost of Taxis and sometimes misleading. Would not stay at this hotel again and would not recommend to others
